Shamil Thakrar - Dishoom

Shamil Thakrar, Dishoom


Shamil Thakrar co-founded Dishoom in 2010 and Brian Trollip has been part of the Dishoom family almost from the start, as Chief Operations-Walla and more recently as Managing Director. Dishoom now has eight restaurants in the UK and employs over 950 people. Shamil, Brian and the Dishoom team care enormously about creating beautiful and democratic spaces which pay homage to the old Irani cafés of Bombay. They also care deeply about creating a company which is an awesome place to work. They are both particularly proud that Dishoom will shortly pass the milestone of having donated meals for 10 million school children in the UK and in India.
